How awesome are scars?!

It's beginning to look a lot like Summer! And it's the season of shorts, skirts, and sundresses. And the more summer clothes I wear, the more scars I own become visible. But scars aren't something we should hide or be embarrassed about. Let's take a time machine ride to see how I got my scars that are (probably) permanent.

I have one scar on my right knee that is about 2cm long and just last month I celebrated its 10th anniversary (so 2005). I got this scar after attempting to ride my bicycle down our stairs - I swear they're not steep and they're not even actual stairs, and yes, I was very dumb - and I didn't succeed.

There's a scar on my right foot from the first time my best friend and I went on vacation together in 2012. I stepped on some impromtu steel cover of a small pit and it turned around and hit me on the foot. It hurt like hell and I was limping for three days, but it healed nicely (the scar remains).

There's also one scar on my tailbone from an emergency surgery I had in November. It looks kind of funny because it's just a random 1cm wide and 3mm deep hole on my lower back so it's not even a normal scar.
(9/2015 UPDATE: I had another surgery like this, so now there's two similar scars on my tailbone.)

Even though most of my scars are consequences of ridiculous circumstances, there are a lot of people that are ashamed of the scars they got from certain illnesses. I don't understand that. Every scar lets other people know that you went through something, either small or big. And you conquered it. You're badass. And your scars tell your story.

Do you have any scars?
